COMMUNITY SUPPORT GROUPS

We believe that healing from the pain and disappointment of life is most effectively accomplished in the context of community. Throughout the year we host a variety of Community Support Groups which provide a safe and engaging environment in which participants grow in their understanding of their shared struggles and support each other as they journey towards healing and wholeness. The groups are open to all members of the community and are facilitated by trained, compassionate volunteers. 
Pre-registration is required for all groups. Cost is $20.
